Trampoline Hall, January 29

Hi there. Been a while since I checked in here, but I should mention I'll be speaking at the Trampoline Hall lecture series later this month, a lecture series praised for its “eccentricity and do-it-yourself inventiveness” (The New Yorker) where none of the lecturers are experts on their subject. Vancouver's Trampoline Hall is hosted by Misha Glouberman and curated by Lee Henderson.

Performance Works, 1218 Cartwright St. Jan. 29, 7 p.m. $24, 604-605-8284, pushfestival.ca
